“Well that's a shame, I feel really bad for him, NOT!
First off, why is he drinking a water based drink, it looks like a fruit juice or something? That's only going to make it worse. Milk is the only thing that helps with dissolving the capsaicin.
Yes the Butch T Scorp is the hottest pepper, and it should be shown a little respect, those things can kill you. Here's a whole bunch of hot chile pepper review if anyone wants to see how it's really done

“That's a fun article, some good points too. I just hope all of the 150 year old folks are going to have to retake their driving tests at some point, perhaps when they hit 125. I don't think longevity is something that happens arbitrarily. It's an aligning of the planets with multiple factors all coming together - diet, exercise, low calorie consumption and a particular kind of outlook on life that's perhaps limited to a small percentage of the population. Me, well I keep chipping away at a 40" waistline and hoping that some magic pill will appear on the market within my lifetime, enabling us couch potatoes and ensuring that we can maintain the comfortable lifestyle which we enjoy!
I also pop my vitamins on a daily basis, I'm convinced they're keeping me alive now even though I'm only 49. Royal jelly does the trick for me, the original anti aging compound, with its uses internally and topically. (My wife does the face cream ritual, not me). The Natural Shopper has some nice options to "Keep Yourself Alive", as the old Queen song goes. I also think drinking beer can help. A good IPA provides me with a wide array of nutrition that most people rarely consider. they claim it's every bit as good as wine, so I'm hoping to be a beneficiary of the 'French Paradox' - drink plenty and live long!”

5 Tips for Staying Healthy This Cold and Flu Season

“I think the post makes some common sense suggestions. I also take note of what 'euthman' says in his follow-up comment about the immune system and unsubstantiated claims. That may be the case, but there would certainly seem to be connections between maintaining a healthy immune system by ingesting antioxidants as a means of supporting immune system health, and keeping oneself free from every little cold bug that floats around. I personally use supplementation (royal jelly) and also try to increase my intake of fresh and raw vegetables and fruit, through the Winter. In a sense this is counter intuitive since these foods are far more readily available in the Summer, but I firmly believe in their benefits in supporting the immune system and avoiding many common ailments. Of course there are many 'quack' statements about miracle cures and what have you, but I think you can work at creating the best environment to keep yourself free from colds through the peak season, and anything which supports immune system health has to be a good place to start.”
